I just found this forum today so I d like to say hello to everyone.
I am posting here as I have problems understanding the real capabilities offered by blackberrys in terms of attachment management.

I basically need to be able to open, review, modify and send word and excel documents on the go.

does the 8700 and 800 come in standard with a software to read and modify those two type of files?

I think I also need to specify that I do not go through a BES.

thank you

No. None of the Blackberry models have the ability to modify Word or Excel documents.
There is third party software available for this purpose, but if this is your primary function for your mobile device... then I would suggest that the Blackberry is not the right tool for you and you should look into a Windows Mobile device for better Word/Excel integration.

Blackberry is a mobile e-mail device first and foremost. It can open Word / Excel documents if they are attached to an e-mail, but the viewing capailities is very limited. You will become frustrated very quickly if Word/Excel document management is one of your priorities.
